School Telemedicine Program
Quick & Convenient
At Shannon, we understand that the health of your child is of the utmost importance. We also understand that taking time off work when your child suddenly gets sick at school isn’t always easy. With the Shannon School Telemedicine Program, your child can get the care they need without making a trip to an urgent care clinic and having to sit in a waiting room.
Careful & Confidential
Shannon’s School Telehealth Program lets your child see a doctor through computer and video technology in the school nurse’s office. Using specialized equipment,
physicians from the Shannon Pediatric Clinic can listen to your child’s heart, look into their ears and throat and assess any other symptoms. If necessary, the Shannon provider will call in a prescription to your chosen pharmacy. Parents who wish to listen to their child’s appointment may do so via phone. You can sign up for access to your child’s records at shannonmychart.com and see all information from the visit.
Conditions that can be treated:
Illnesses that you would normally visit an urgent care clinic for can be treated virtually through the telemedicine program. These include:
- Abrasions and scrapes
- Strep Throat
- Coughs and colds
- Head lice
- Rashes and minor skin infections
- Pink eye
Pre-registration & Cost of Service
Parents must complete registration paperwork to enroll their child into the program. Paperwork is available from the school nurse and should be returned to the school office. Shannon is proud to partner with SAISD to pilot this program and offer it at no cost to students during the 2019-2020 school year.
This year, we will be piloting the program at Goliad Elementary School, but plan on expanding to other schools soon.
